A Time to Heal is the second book in the Quilts of Lancaster series, and it is just as wonderful as the first book in the series. The story yanked me in from the first page and didn't let go until the final word. We get to follow more of Jenny & Matthew's life together, in addition to the primary focus on Matthew's sister Hannah, and Chris, the newcomer Englisher, who helps Matthew during a busy harvest-time. Chris is an ex-soldier, searching for peace, after doing the right thing costs him more then he counted on losing. Like it's predecessor, A Time to Heal hits on hard themes, such as doing the right thing even when it hurts, forgiveness, and trying to understand God's Will. This is Amish fiction with an edge.

A Time to Heal is a value-added book, with authentic Amish recipes, a glossary, discussion questions, an interview with the author, and snippets from A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County book 1) and A Time for Peace (Quilts of Lancaster County book 3). Amish fiction lovers will love this story!

It took me just parts of a couple of days to read A Time to Heal by Barbara Cameron, book two in her Quilts of Lancaster County series, and that was time very enjoyably spent. Barbara has a way of sharing lots of interesting information about the Amish way as she brings her characters to life and weaves them together into a great story.

It was fun to revisit Jenny, Matthew, Phoebe, Hannah, and the kinner in Paradise. Chris, an Englisch acquaintance of Jenny's, comes looking for peace while dealing with physical and emotional injuries of war. He finds the peace he's longing for, and much more, as he is attracted to the outspoken and determined Hannah. But he and the Bontrager family face questions, unrest, and tragedies when his past follows him and brings harm to those he has grown to love.

I would recommend that you curl up under a cozy quilt and enjoy this story of love, hope and forgiveness from a great author. I'm looking forward to coming back for a visit with old friends when A Time for Peace comes out in the fall.

I am not big on romances that feature Amish, written by people who are not Amish. I am not big on romances period. But every once in a while the brain needs something sweet, fluffy, light. So this book was my rice crispy treat for the brain. I did like the characters, and it is refreshing when a romance is truly that and not another sex novel. This was book two of a series, but easily read as a stand alone.
Chris has returned home from the war, with a lot of bitterness and PTSD. He is looking for someone he met in the hospital, hoping that he will find peace also. Predictably he finds love. The saving part is that Hannah is no sweet demure young thing, but an old maid with a sharp tongue who doesn't like this stranger hanging around. Hannah is the character that makes the book, otherwise all the characters would just be sweet as honey.
I probably won't go back and read the first one, but if you like romance, with a lack of smut, then this author would appeal.

I waited for this second book and read it in one day. Now I want the third book right now. So many twists and written from the heart. The characters seem so real in way the author writes. It is not a preaching book but one with Christian meanings throughout.

I enjoyed this story, but good gosh, where are the editors?? One of the main characters "schooled her expression" no less than FOUR times in the book - and the book is not that long. It reminds me of someone I know who uses a newly-learned word or expression every chance he gets. It makes for ridiculous reading. The author needs to find a thesaurus, and the editors need to notice and correct word overuse.

That aside, the story itself was a good read, entertaining, and the characters interesting. I would be interested in reading another in the series, so long as the characters can refrain from "schooling their expressions" every other page!

Quilts of Lancaster County # 2

When "Englisch" Chris visits now-Plain Jenny and falls for her lovely sister-in-law Hannah, not all the explosions come from colliding worlds.

I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Very readable story with plenty of elements besides romance. The title was relevant but not very specific.

Cameron's books, based in Amish communities, are a delightful blend of well-developed characters, well paced story-telling and a glimpse into the beliefs and philosophies of this relatively simple lifestyle, so different from that which many of us live.

When Chris ventures to Lancaster County, hoping to find healing from his experiences in the war, little does he know how deeply he'll be affected by Hannah, the Amish sister-in-law of a woman he met at the VA hospital during rehab. He also has no idea how important her family and friends will become to him, how much he'll be involved in the community and family and how much satisfaction he'll gain from helping her brother, Matthew, with the harvest. Despite all this, there are those who deeply resent the presence of the English man in their quiet existence and this resentment grows into threats against himself, Hannah and her family.

I always come away from Cameron's books feeling refreshed, more believing in mankind and more interested in slowing down a bit and looking at the simple good in life. Her portrayal of the basic beliefs and consequent actions of the Amish community are well researched, well presented, not preachy, yet giving one pause, points to ponder and, often, some peaceful insight into one's own life.
